Abstract

Marxist scholars and serious graduate students of social movements, global development, rurality, cultural sociology, environmentalism, and agrofood production systems will find that the collection of presentations in this volume represents a nascent bridge between the fields of peasant studies and poverty research under historically shifting capitalist systems. The combined chapters originated from the proceedings of the International Seminar on Peasant Poverty and Persistence held in Mexico City during the spring of 2012. Peasant Poverty and Persistence in the Twenty‐first Century offers readers a thoughtful and analytically enticing introduction to three fundamental questions at the heart of today's global peasant crisis: Why has peasantry, unlike other areas of noncapitalist production, persisted? Why are the vast majority of peasants economically marginalized? Moreover, how can a Marxist lens offer insights into the prior two interrelated questions?Divided into three distinct parts, the editors have amassed contributions from various disciplines from the three sessions that occurred during the international seminar. The published result offers Marxist and non‐Marxist sociologists new theoretical, historical, and policy perspectives on global poverty and the plight of peasants. The first part of the book provides abstract and concrete definitions of what is meant by a “rural peasantry” embedded in the
